My fave author Neil Gaiman, who recently married his rocker fiancée Amanda Palmer in San Francisco, CA to ring in the New Year, announced on his official Twitter profile last night that he will be guest starring on an upcoming episode of The Simpsons. Gaiman has been cast as a “Nail Gaiman: British author”, a role I think he can prolly handle. Gaiman also posted a few fun photos from the recording session for sharing.
About to do something really cool. Up there with writing a DOCTOR WHO level of cool. May post Twitpic clues / Went to the Marge Simpson Studios. Recorded my part as “Neil Gaiman”, a British author. The accent was the hardest bit to get right. / Apparently Hank Azaria did an excellent me at the table read.
So freakin’ cool!! I love Neil so much and I think he will be fantastic on The Simpsons. Amanda, Neil’s blushing bride, had to jet off to Australia to start a tour down there and Neil was unable to go with her … and now we know why. I understand that Neil has finally reunited with his new bride in Oz. Happy Gaiman news all around. Woot!!
